The Ireland Funds has released ./guidance on setting up a Giving Circle for donors.A Giving Circle is formed when individuals come together and pool their funds, decide together where to give the money (and perhaps volunteer time or expertise) and learn together about their community and philanthropy.The 11 page ./guidance says a recent study by the Forum of Regional Associations of Grant-makers in the United States found that 140 Giving Circles have generated nearly $90 million, primarily in the last five years.The Ireland Funds document, which was prepared by Helen Fullen and Jordan Campbell for the Ireland Funds, says there are ten steps to establishing a successful Giving Circle, including setting up a structure and mission, selecting beneficiaries and making grants.Experience to date shows that most Giving Circles set annual level of donations from €120-€1000 a year to €5000 to €20000.The ./guidance provides an example of an Irish Giving Circle, the Core Group, which was set up in 2004 and to date has made donations of €150,000.www.irlfunds.org AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Mumbai Indians win fifth IPL title after Rohit Sharma leads them to a storming win over Delhi Capitals | Cricket News
10:52 As it was, the contrast could hardly have been more stark as Rohit set the tone, hitting Ravichandran Ashwin over long on for a six in the first over before De Kock climbed into Rabada in the next, taking his compatriot for 18, included a six that sailed over the legside and into the stands.Rohit gave another South African, Anrich Nortje, the same treatment and even the dismissal of De Kock, caught behind to Stoinis’ first ball, did nothing to slow Mumbai as Suryakumar Yadav came in and slapped his first ball through cover for four and lifted the next over fine leg for six.Even after a quiet sixth over, Mumbai were 61-1 at the end of the powerplay and well ahead of the rate. Rohit Sharma and his Mumbai Indians side lift the IPL trophy after winning the tournament for the fifth time Delhi Capitals tasted defeat in their first IPL final despite the best efforts of captain Shreyas Iyer (65no from 50) and Rishabh Pant (56 from 38), who rescued them from 22-3 and helped Ricky Ponting’s men post a respectable 156-7.The game got off to a dramatic start as Trent Boult, whose participation had been in doubt due to a groin injury, produced a beauty first ball to have Marcus Stoinis caught behind. 0:53 Substitute Delhi Capitals fielder Lalit Yadav took a superb diving catch to dismiss Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma in the IPL Final Substitute Delhi Capitals fielder Lalit Yadav took a superb diving catch to dismiss Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma in the IPL Final Rohit’s fine innings was eventually brought to an end by Nortje thanks to a brilliant catch in the deep from sub fielder Lalit Yadav but Pollard came in and struck successive fours to take Mumbai ever closer.He was bowled by Rabada, a 30th IPL wicket of the season for the fast bowler, in the next over but another Kishan boundary took Mumbai to within a hit of the trophy.Hardik was caught off Nortje in the next over with the scores level so it was left to his older brother Krunal to hit the winning run from the next ball. – Advertisement – Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting says Mumbai Indians were deserved winners of the 2020 IPL – but was proud of the way his side played That allowed Rohit to regroup for a couple of overs before going again with twin sixes off Praveen Dubey in the ninth, one over long off and the next over long on.Not everything went to plan for Rohit though and he was looked crestfallen after running out Suryakumar (19), calling for a single that was never on. The junior man sacrificed himself for his captain and Rohit did not pass up the opportunity, reaching his fifty with the first of back-to-back boundaries in the next over.With the required rate dropping quickly, Rohit was happy to tick the score over with Kishan going on the offensive, nailing Stoinis over long off for six and adding a further two boundaries off Dubey. Mumbai Indians claimed their fifth IPL title with a comprehensive five-wicket win over Delhi Capitals in the final in Dubai; captain Rohit Sharma scored a blistering 68 while Trent Boult starred with the ball, taking three wickets Last Updated: 10/11/20 7:14pm 0:32 Rohit Sharma and his Mumbai Indians side lift the IPL trophy after winning the tournament for the fifth time – Advertisement – Watch highlights from Dubai as Mumbai Indians beat Delhi Capitals by five wickets to win their fifth Indian Premier League title Pant was growing in confidence after brought up his first fifty of the season by lap-sweeping Nathan Coulter-Nile for four. He top-edged the next ball over Quinton de Kock head for four more but Coulter-Nile had his revenge from the last ball of the over when Pant hooked the bumper straight to Hardik at fine leg.Iyer kept going and brought up his own half-century from 40 balls but Boult (3-30) returned to remove Shimton Hetymer with a slower-ball bouncer and with Mumbai’s death bowling as impressive as ever, the innings appeared to run out of steam.Coulter-Nile dismissed Axar Patel in the final over and while Iyer took Delhi over 150 with a maximum from the penultimate ball, Kagiso Rabada was run out from the last as Mumbai finished the innings as they started it: with a wicket.The Capitals needed early wickets defending such a modest total against Mumbai’s star-studded batting line-up, ideally a mirror image of their own start.
State-owned weapons manufacturer PT Pindad and electronics manufacturer PT LEN Industri are developing and planning to mass-produce ventilators to help hospitals handle COVID-19 patients, officials said.Pindad has developed a ventilator prototype and is currently seeking medical certification from the Health Ministry’s Health Equipment Monitoring Agency (BPPK), the company’s president director, Abraham Mose, told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.“We have tested it in our hospital in Bandung and it’s already operational. Once we receive the green light from the BPPK, we will be able to produce 40 ventilators per day,” he said. “We’re producing the ventilators by ourselves for now, but I think the machine will work better if it’s equipped with an oxygen flow sensor, among other things,” he said. “And for that to happen, I think we need to work together with other electronics companies such as PT LEN.”Read also: PTDI, Indofarma, universities working on ventilator prototypesHospital chains perform well on IDX, thanks to rising awareness about healthy livingSeparately, LEN Industri told the Post on Wednesday that the company was also developing a ventilator in collaboration with the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT). The company declined to further elaborate on the project as their product was still in the trial process, according to its statement to the Post.Pindad and Len Industri have joined the list of companies working to develop and produce medical equipment to help meet skyrocketing demand for equipment to treat COVID-19 patients.State-owned aircraft manufacturer PT Dirgantara Indonesia told the Post on Tuesday that the aerospace company planned to mass-produce one of five ventilator prototypes currently being tested by the Health Ministry.State-owned pharmaceuticals firm PT Indofarma is also developing health equipment such as invasive ventilators, hospital beds, IV posts and negative-pressured isolation stretchers.Read also: Hospital chains perform well on IDX, thanks to rising awareness about healthy livingA sharp increase in demand for masks has also prompted other manufacturers from various industries to produce masks and other personal protective equipment.Textile companies such as publicly listed PT Pan Brothers and PT Sri Rejeki Isman have switched some of their production lines to make masks and coveralls. Pan Brothers agreed to produce 20 million washable masks and 100,000 jumpsuits by April, as ordered by the government and several retailers.Topics : Read also: Indonesia looks to China, S. Korea for medical suppliesPindad, he went on to say, had been developing the ventilators since early March and expected to be able to produce the machines “in a matter of weeks.”Indonesia currently has 8,936 ventilators divided between 1,827 hospitals across the country, according to Health Ministry data on March 23. Meanwhile, official data shows the number of COVID-19 cases in the country having reached 2,956, with 240 fatalities, the highest death toll in Southeast Asia, as of Wednesday afternoon. Scientists have estimated that the number of cases could reach 71,000 by the end of April.Abraham said that while Pindad was independently developing the ventilators, he expressed hope for a collaboration with LEN Industri to improve the ventilators.
